Could It Be? 2 Mid Century Modern Sunscreen Patterns That I Missed

IMG_7508I’m astounded, but it seems I missed a couple of patterns back in our series of the 50 different patterns. I found this on a relatively obscure cul-de-sac in Paradise Palms. It’s not original to the home and seems to be an extension of the sunscreen that was there from the get go.

I happened to make a u-turn in front of the house yesterday and caught a glimpse of it from an unusual angle, which is why I hadn’t seen it before.

The concrete block decorative sunscreen patterns were used extensively in the 50’s and 60’s. They’re in almost every one of the neighborhoods that we cover regularly. A good rule of thumb, is that when you run stop seeing the decorative concrete block sunscreens, you’re not in Vintage Vegas anymore.
